Vacation Planning: Spring & Summer Beauty Routine
Welcome to Part II of your Spring & Summer vacation planning guide – Check out Part I for some ideas & inspiration for fun updos and hairstyles to try on your next vacation.
When the weather starts to warm up I immediately start thinking about simplifying my beauty routine. Who wants to go to all the trouble of putting on a full face of makeup when you’ll sweat it off by 10am? This goes for daily life in the city as well as for vacations and weekends away – I want as little time in front of the bathroom mirror as possible. So as you’d think, my go-to products for this time of year are versatile ones that you can serve multiple purposes:
(1) Argan Oil – I cannot travel, or live really, without argan oil. It may be having its 15 minutes right now but I’ve been using it for years and highly recommend picking up a quality version like Josie Maran’s Organic Argan Oil or L’Oreal’s EverSleek. This oil can be used on your hair, your skin, your feet, your cuticles…
See what I meant about multitasking?
(2) BB/CC Cream – When it comes to one-stop-wonders is there anything more magical than the BB and CC creams out there? Light coverage, evening out skintone, and best of all, SPF. Nothing worse than having to smooth an oily sunscreen over your face! I’ve tried a handful of different versions and so far my favorites are Maybelline, L’Oreal, and Rimmel.
(3) Chubby Stick – These little sticks are great multitaskers, you can use them on your lips, cheeks, or eyes. Perfect for a quick freshening up midday or before a night out. Clinique and Cover Girl both make lovely versions in a number of shades – I love the versions with a little coral in them!
